What's the best green stuff to colour and (more importantly) preserve
a wooden fence?

Cheers

Ronseal?

Also, best regardless of price (e.g. Sadolin) or best value for money?

I found Sadolin to be useless in Italy, the sun causes it to flake off in
large sheets. Its accelerated ageing compared to the UK but indicates what
will happen over time.

I would use Johnstones Shed and Fence paint, it has stood up well in the UK
and in Italy.
